A reading for the Broadway production took place January 3-17, 2017, according to an updated Actors’ Equity casting notice. Jason Moore (Avenue Q) will direct the workshop, produced by Jeffrey Seller (Hamilton) and Flody Suarez. The project features a book by Tony winner Rick Elice (Peter and the Starcatcher, Jersey Boys). The casting breakdown describes three main roles – Babe, Lady and Star – who “represent Cher at different moments of her life – starting as a teenager who falls for Sonny Bono (Babe), a successful music star navigating the challenges of the entertainment industry (Lady) and the lady we know today with a fascinating wealth of life experience, successes, and failures (Star).”
